Underground Beauty Trend

"No-Poo" is a growing movement among women who want to have better looking hair, avoid toxins, waste less plastic and save money.

Really, who's big idea was it anyway that we all have to massage this stuff packed with harmful chemicals into our scalp several times a week? Shampoo strips your hair of natural oils, so on top of this we need conditioner to counteract the drying effects of it!

And what does it do to the environment when it drains away?

Shampooing our hair is a manufactured need. In the 1930's, commercial shampoo was on the market and women used to wash their hair once a week. Not until the 70's did people consider it necessary to go through this ritual several times a week, even daily.

It is time to question the explosion of personal care products and what they release into our skin and the environment.

There are several ways to go if you are curious about reducing shampoo use, different methods are good for different hair types.

This video shows you one woman's first experiment washing her hair with baking soda and vinegar instead.

With all these methods, you will reduce the amount of money, time and chemicals introduced on your skin.

And you will rid yourself of one more deeply ingrained habit brought to you by the consumer culture.
